So what I want to know is, hard resetting would still work wouldn't it? I always hear people talk about soft resetting when talking about shiny hunting and I know I have achieved female starters via hard resetting but I can't help but wonder if it is ok for shinies too.
Pressing L, R, Start & Select should soft reset your game, I just tested it, maybe one of your buttons is faulty or something. \:

Anyway, I think HR is still an option, SR'ing is just faster and easier.
